Doubts

When thinking of what to write, I checked out Theme Thursday and saw the topic, "Doubts." Not knowing what to write, I stared at the word and came up with a definition for it. See if you switch the /U/ and /B/ in DOUBTS, you come up with the words DO BUTS. It's the perfect definition of the word. I'd do it, but . . .  See when you want to do something but the "but" gets in the way, it makes you doubt what you want to do. And if you continually doubt things, you have a lot of buts.

If you are laughing at the word "buts," you would fit with my fourth graders because they continually giggle whenever that conjunction pops up. Why is that?

Bart Simpson's butt makes me laugh,

I'd rather have DO NUTS than DO BUTS. Especially with sprinkles.

I have boys. They laugh at any potty talk words. My oldest tends to sneeze and toot at the same time. That makes us all laugh.

Very funny doubts, I mean the students buts!

I have a 4th grader of my own and I don't get the whole potty talk thing, but he cracks up whenever I I say butt or poop - or anything bathroom related.

Amazing how you can turn a word into something else. But I totally agree...I want to do something BUT something else is in the way. Thanks for the smiles and giggles on the Thumping Thursday bloghop.

Nice word spin. And I didn't laugh at the conjunction, but my husband and youngest son would have. ;)

Love your play on words and it's so true! Doubt has put the kibosh on many a plan. The cartoon made me laugh. :D

I did NOT show this post to my class. We were working with conjunctions in grammar and the word "but' came up.
